Summer may be partly over, but it's never too late to book a last minute vacation. Living in Los Angeles, there are many places you can go that are close by, i.e. Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Malibu, Santa Barbara..., but many of us have already frequented these areas. If you're looking for some place new, look to Lake Powell. Although it is a slightly longer drive (4 hours from Vegas) Lake Powell is the perfect mixture of nature, seclusion, fun in the sun, and fine dining.
From kayaking, to paddle boarding, to hiking through the million year old Mesa's, Lake Powell is much more than just an average vacation, it is a chance to emerge yourself in nature and history. You may just be lucky enough to see some of the prehistoric petroglyphs.
There are many different ways to experience Lake Powell. Stay at one of the local hotels or rent a houseboat for a luxurious adventure on the water!
